Arts Santa Monica
An exhibition space run by the Generalitat (Catalan Regional Government), Arts Santa Monica is located in a restored 17th-century convent. Although it lacks the prestige of the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) , there's always something interesting to see, be it a group or an individual artist on show. The gallery organizes seasons focusing on the work of contemporary Catalan painters like Jordi Mercade and Joan Pere Viladecans, for example. The Alexandre Cirici Pellicer Research Centre that's dedicated to the study of Catalan art is here as well.
